Find a Long, Wide Blade of Grass


Hold the Grass
  • Cup your hands together with your thumbs lined up and the blade of grass sandwiched between them. Your thumbs should touch at the top and bottom, leaving an opening in the middle.
  • Hold the grass tightly between your thumbs.

Blow and Whistle!

Blow through the opening. When the grass vibrates, it will make a sound. This is a little tricky, so, if it doesn't work at first, keep trying until it does!
